Neuroprotection for CNS disorders
The concept of neuroprotection is now important in many diseases that were once only treated symptomatically and in which a disease-modifying approach is desirable. Neuroprotective agents have an important role in the management of neurodegenerative disorders as well as acute insults such as CNS trauma, cerebral ischemia, and iatrogenic hypoxia/ischemia during surgical procedures. Neuroprotective strategies are also required to protect the brain against toxic effects of chemicals and drugs.
